I posted a few days ago here and no one has responded, see my post below, starts out GROSS HEMATURA AND RIGHT FLANK AND BACK PAIN.
I have right flank and back pain and blood in urine, every few weeks I will have a burning in my urine and bloos be there.
Like you I tend to hurt when I am active.
Had ultrasound and no mass or tumors were found but they say i have to have other testing for stones; i hurt so badly; just wondered h\where your stones are located and how they found them? how many? how big are they? i am not sure about the kidney failure part, but the dr should be able to read the blood work for the kidney function and see if there are changes.
I would love to hear what you have to say about your condition, and hope you find help, I also hope your answers can help me.
From what my Doctor told me is that i have kidney stones in the ureter. I had an x-ray and that's how i found out that i had kidney stones, they are the size of a quarter from what the doctor told me. I have 3, and they hurt so bad and i cannot pass them. The more active i am the worse it is. iI know how you feel because i am also in the same situation, they are uncomfortable and there is not a day that does buy that i don't hurt. How big are your stones and where are yours located? How long have you had yours?
thanks for responding; i still do not know what my problem is, i had an ultrasound and they saw no mass, tumors or stones but the xray tech said i woul dnned an xray, going to be cystescoped wednesday and then from there i guess.
i have no idea what it is, they suspect stones, and i have had blood in urine, burning when i pee or not pee, right back and flank pain for 8 months.
i am frustrated, scared and in pain every minute of every day.
I had urine in my blood as well but it comes and goes. The burning in the pee sounds as if it's a urinary tract infection, or it could be kidney stones as well. The kidney stones could be hiding, i have heard of that. Has your doctor given you anything for the pain? I hope everything goes well on Wednesday and hopefully they will have more answers for you. I know it's frustrating, and i am frustrated as well but i just take it one day at a time and i would tell your doctor just how much pain you are in, maybe he can help or give you a stronger medication.
blood comes and goes in my urine also, there is no infection when cultured; i burn when i pee and it burns when i do not pee; i have just never heard of having 8 months of symptoms like this the flank/back pain then days letter the blood in the urine, and not passing a stone, if that is what it is.
anyway, i guess i will know more after the cystescope.
i wish you better health and we will talk after wednesday.
thanks for responding.
do you mind me asking your age range? i am wondering of this is a midage thing? i will be 50 in july and this started sept. last year.
Thanks for responding, I have done some research on flank pain and it states the following: Flank pain often means kidney trouble. If flank pain is accompanied by fever, chills, blood in the urine, or frequent or urgent urination, then a kidney problem is the likely cause.
Anti-inflammatory drugs and physical therapy may be prescribed for flank pain .
I take cranberry pills everyday just to help any infections and i also drink water as well, to flush out any bacteria and infection. I hope eveything goes well for you Tomorrow and know i am always here if you need to talk. BTW, I am 35 yrs old and from what i understand it has nohing to do with age, this affects all age groups, LOL I thought that as well...
